How to Make “No Bake Cookies”

Delicious Chocolate Treat Ready in Fifteen Minutes

The one chocolate treat that anyone can make is a No Bake Cookie. A combination of oatmeal, chocolate, and peanut butter, No Bake Cookies can be easily prepared in less than fifteen minutes. No Bake Cookies were affectionately called “doodoo cookies” in my house growing up. If you follow these easy steps you can prepare enough chocolate delight for all of your friends to enjoy. First mix three cups of oatmeal, two cups of chocolate morsels, one teaspoon of vanilla extract, and three tablespoons of oatmeal in a large mixing bowl. Set the bowl to the side because you won’t cook any of the ingredients in the bowl, hence the name No Bake. Next mix one half cup of milk, one stick of margarine, and two cups of butter in a small saucepan. Slowly melt the butter with the milk, but make sure that the sugar doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan. Then, bring the ingredients to a rapid boil, constantly stirring all throughout the liquid. After boiling for one minute, pour the liquid into the dry ingredient bowl. Stir with great intensity as you pour, so that the chocolate and the butter mesh properly. Also, you don’t want to over stir or beat the mixture too much; therefore, use your arm the old fashioned way. After your mixture is thoroughly mixed it will begin to thicken as it cools. It is important to begin making your cookies quickly. Lay out sheets of aluminum foil on the counter to place your cookies on. The cookie dough at this point should have the consistency of pancake batter. Take a tablespoon and begin scooping the dough out onto the aluminum foil. Let the cookies cool down and harden, and then enjoy one of the easiest cookies to make. No Bake Cookies are a great alternative to the normal dough baked cookie. Also with No Bake Cookies there is hardly any cleanup, and very little energy used to make them. This recipe should yield twenty to twenty-two cookies, it just depends on how big your tablespoon is.
